Default Illustration

I was thinking about doing an Illustration degree and would like some recommendation and info. I know Howard has done Illustration.

One question though. What’s the difference between Illustration and Fine Art?
Yeah, but no but yeah but no....

From my understanding, illustration is specifically drawing/painting. Fine art covers all the arts from drawing to sculpting et al.

illustration is generally more comercial art, while fine art is more like nitro said painting and scuplture.

I have a BFA when i was in school i majored in painting and drawing.
